What do you do when you feel broken and hopeless?
Any situation that has caused (or is causing) you deep misery and anguish can be difficult to overcome alone. You may respond like I once did… holding your head in your hands while crying excessively. Or maybe you ball your hands in a tight fist ranting cuss words and lashing out venom on innocent bystanders. Maybe you seclude yourself and gradually descend into self-pity. Whatever the response, they are all ineffective in gaining true victory over your situation.
If you are tired of hurting, I have good news to share. God loves you and is ready to bring you into a place of peace, restoration and joy! God can and will bring you out of anything you encounter – your darkest valley, your unspeakable shame, your unbearable grief, your misfortunes, your depression, your failures, your fears and your seemingly incurable pain.
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. – Isaiah 41:10
All you have to do is seek Him.
Now is the best time to go towards God. It does not matter if you have never had a relationship with God before or you cannot remember the last time you spoke to Him. Today is your day. Seek Him through prayer, praise and meditation of His Word. He desires for you to know Him more intimately. God is ready to show you His power and His response to your situation!
